Seize more control over your local network via your jailbroken iPhone with Harpy Reloaded

As capable of an internet communications device as the iPhone is, it seems like Apple doesn’t give users all that many options for Wi-Fi connectivity and network management.

Like most things Apple, the company instead took a user-friendly approach to reduce the number of interactions a user makes with configuration. This makes complicated things more approachable by the masses, but it can be annoying if you’re a power user that demands more capabilities.

This tweak makes it easier to discern when you’re connected to a VPN on notched iPhones

Virtual Private Networks, or VPNs for short, have become an increasingly popular way for consumers to keep their data private and secure while browsing the web via a computer, smartphone, or tablet.

On iPhones, a VPN icon will be displayed in the Status Bar after you connect to one. But notched iPhones like the iPhone X and later minimize the VPN indicator to interfaces with full-sized Status Bar due to size constraints, such as that of Control Center.

Linus Henze demos untethered jailbreak on iPhone 12 Pro Max with iOS 14.5.1

For the past several years, the overwhelming majority of jailbreaks have been semi-untethered, meaning that you could still use a handset hacked liberated by said tools after a reboot, albeit in a non-jailbroken state.

The lack of untethered jailbreaks — or those that remain fully jailbroken following a reboot — has been a pain point for jailbreakers for as long as anyone can remember. For that reason, a Tweet shared by @LinusHenze Monday afternoon might be of particular interest…

CoolStar teases libhooker mostly working on iOS 15 beta 8

Just a couple of days ago, the Odyssey Team shared that it was already investing in test devices for iOS & iPadOS 15 jailbreak development. The announcement was accompanied by a photograph of an iPod touch that had been custom engraved with the words “Odyssey Team” on the back.

More recently, Odyssey Team lead developer CoolStar took to the Sileo / Taurine / Odyssey Discord channel to share that libhooker — the tweak injection method utilized by the Chimera, Odyssey, and Taurine jailbreaks for iOS 12, 13, and 14 respectively — was mostly working on iOS 15 beta 8.

Newly teased PoC raises hope for pwning certain handsets on iOS 14.4-14.5.1

The most current jailbreak tools available to the public today are Taurine and unc0ver, each of which are capable of jailbreaking devices running up to and including iOS or iPadOS 14.3. Several iPhone and iPad software updates later, and we’re currently residing at iOS & iPadOS 14.7.1 with a public iOS & iPadOS 15 release looming just over the horizon.

Having said that, the elephant in the room would be the blazingly-obvious question: where are all the jailbreak-viable exploits for iOS 14.4 and later?
